Davon Reed didn’t draw the start on Saturday but still managed to score a career-high 16 points against the Hornets, going 5-of-8 from the field and a perfect 4-of-4 from deep to go with six rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Reed started the second half when Josh Jackson departed the Suns’ last game but returned to the bench for this one. It didn’t affect him, and he was part of an effective bench group that closed the gap severely. The Suns poured in 43 points in the final frame to get this game back down into single-digits after trailing by 22 after three. While Reed doesn’t have enough of a track record (this was his ninth career game), the Suns might be down their three main wings for the near-future. There are worse fliers to take at this point in the year.
